  • Kyle's Bikes 2017-18 Winter Bike Maintenance Specials

    Kyle's Bikes Winter Bike Maintenance SpecialsHave you noticed that chill in the air? Our mechanics have. They've noticed you don't come by as much anymore. They miss seeing you; well, they miss your bike, anyway. So we are offering two winter bike maintenance specials to entice you to bring that bike in for a visit.

    We understand you might not be riding as much, or maybe now you're riding your fat bike instead. That makes this a good time to drop your summer bike or race bike off so our mechanics can thoroughly clean, lube, and adjust it and have you ready for next season.

    Stop in our store in Ankeny, Iowa between now and Monday, February 5th to take advantage of these deals.
